    Are you working with an agent. When we sold our house, our agent came over and made some suggestions of how to make it "show ready". A thorough cleaning, and then decluttering, and staging areas was something we did

    Clean, clean, clean. Go through your home and remove anything that is personal, i.e. pictures, trophies, etc. Clean off all surfaces, pack away knick knacks.
